Gibberellin signal transduction

Curr Opin Plant Biol. 2000 Oct;3(5):374-80. doi: 10.1016/s1369-5266(00)00099-6.


Recent studies using biochemical and genetic approaches have identified a number of components, including several negative regulators, of the gibberellin (GA) signal transduction pathway in higher plants. The basal state of GA signaling is likely to be repressive, and the GA signal seems to activate the pathway by de-repression to allow GA-stimulated growth and development.
